Rubel: Feeling Nostalgic For Politics Of Days Gone By

Thoughts About The Migrant Caravan

Dec 3, 2018

Commentary: “Hey how is the migrant caravan of Central Americans coming north through Mexico affecting you?” This is a question I am being asked almost daily by people who don’t live here on the U.S.-Mexico border. It relates to the latest wave of migrants who have left countries such as Honduras, Guatemala, and El Salvador to trek north, partly by foot, partly by hitching rides, to get to what they see as the promised land – the United States.  Estimates of the caravan’s size range from 4,000 up to 10,000 people.

Goodman: Grave Concerns About Trump Continue To Grow

Dec 2, 2018

Commentary:  Thursday, Trump's lawyer/fixer Michael Cohen pled guilty to lying to Congress to help Trump's campaign. 

Just months before his election, Trump was seeking a massive hotel deal in Russia, lying to U.S. voters about that, and publicly praising Vladimir Putin – and repeatedly denying the deal. “I HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH RUSSIA — NO DEALS, NO LOANS, NO NOTHING!” 


In 2017, Trump said that the “closest I came to Russia” was in selling a Palm Beach mansion to a Russian oligarch in 2008. 

Udall Statement on NAFTA Replacement

Nov 30, 2018
U.S. Senator Tom Udall D-NM

Commentary: Today, U.S. Senator Tom Udall (D-N.M.) released the following statement after the signing of a replacement NAFTA agreement between the United States, Mexico, and Canada at the G20 summit:

“Today’s signing comes after two years of pointless uncertainty and reckless threats to NAFTA from the Trump administration, which raised roadblocks to investment and economic progress across New Mexico. This new deal — the full extent of which has not been released — will require approval in the next Congress. Time and again, the Trump administration’s hostile and counterproductive approach to relations with Mexico has revealed a misguided understanding of our southern border, and our friends and partners on the other side. As a result, I owe it to New Mexicans to apply the highest level of scrutiny to this agreement to make sure that our border communities won’t suffer the consequences of the administration’s flawed negotiations. As a senator who represents a border state, I will examine this proposed agreement carefully and work to ensure that it actually benefits New Mexico’s workers, environment, and border communities as part of a healthy bilateral relationship with Mexico.

Trump Creates Doubt in U.S. Leadership

Nov 30, 2018

Commentary: Iran’s oil production in 2017 was about one billion barrels—with the majority going to Southeast Asia—mainly China. Since sanctions were lifted in 2016, it started to sell crude oil to Europe. Trump has now put sanctions back on Iran oil sales. Will it be successful?  I and others doubt it will. Trump has frustrated our European allies and instigated a trade war with China. On the world market, oil is a commodity, meaning there are trivial differences about where it comes from.
